Human Rights Demand Schedule ~ Blogtalkradio


"POWER concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will." That is a quote by Frederick Douglass, a 19th century slavery abolitionist. We wish to announce a new human rights channel on Blogtalkradio: "HUMAN RIGHTS DEMAND." Mary Neal is the program director. You are invited to tune in for our daytime broadcasts at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/humanrightsdemand ~ Call to speak on air at (347) 857-3293 for all broadcasts. Your questions and comments are invited and appreciated. HUMAN RIGHTS DEMAND is for all people. If you wish to be a special guest and allowed more time to speak on air, please contact the host for any show you choose, or email Mary Neal at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com

The schedule of programs for seven days and hosts' contact information are below:

1.  Mondays at 3pm EST - LEONNA BRANDAO, JUSTICE ADVOCATE nvopres@gmail.com
Leonna Brandao assists prisoners with supportive legal, educational, and re-entry services. Her mission includes ensuring that prisoners are treated fairly and receive medical and rehabilitative services necessary to heal and become productive citizens upon re-entering their communities. She advocates for pro bono legal assistance and helps research the status of inmates' court cases. As a social worker, Brandao spent many years working with families before she found herself in the position with those who experience the overwhelming loss of having a loved one imprisoned with little to no hope for release. (Brandao founded New Vision Org (NVO) but no longer presides over that organization and has no affiliation thereto.)

2.  Tuesdays, 3pm EST - HUMAN RIGHTS DEMAND FOR JUSTICE (includes live and prerecorded shows). To broadcast your issues, please contact Mary Neal at (678)531.0262 or Google Voice (571)335-1741.

Former Host: Dr. Mustafa Ansari, an international human rights lawyer and Dean of the American Institute of Human Rights. The Institute is committed to educating attorneys and activists on United Nations human rights treaties and laws that America has already signed and is responsible to uphold (i.e., Executive Order 13107). Online classes and certification are offered by the American Institute of Human Rights to equip non-attorneys to file human rights complaints directly to the International Court. Everyone deserves protection of their rights to life, liberty, and security of person and property. administration@scholarsofpeace.com

3. Wednesdays, 3pm EST - NATIVE AMERICAN AFFAIRS

INTEGRITY IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND CORRECTIONS, hosted by Britton Mosley
Mosley is a former corrections and law enforcement officer who endured persecution for refusing to comply with brutality in the prison system where he worked. Mosley said, "Law enforcement and corrections can be challenging and dangerous work but also fulfilling and rewarding if done with integrity. Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person. Those rights deserve protection." (Tapes remain archived at Blogtalkradio)

Discussions regarding the challenges and triumphs of released prisoners. Accepting applications for a new host, preferably someone who has endured incarceration and successfully reentered society or a corrections guard (past or present).

Previous show: JOHNNY STROZIER KEEPING IT REALJohnny Strozier was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. He was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was sentenced to juvenile detention at age 10 and transferred to an adult facility at age 16. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard. Strozier's warden told him he would never exit prison alive, but he did. JohnnyR.Strozier@gmail.com
Hear Strozier's debut broadcast of June 3, 2014, archived at Blogtalkradio any day or time.

6.  Saturdays at 3:00pm EST - RELEASE THE INNOCENT, hosted by Mary Neal
Saturday broadcasts do not air every week. If you know of an actually innocent person who is awaiting trial or has been sentenced, you are invited to contact Mary Neal to broadcast the situation. Call 678.531.0262 or email MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com - Innocent people include defendants who were mentally ill at the time of the arrest.

Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted each year. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:
~Eyewitness Misidentification
~Junk Science
~False Confessions
~Government Misconduct
~Lying Snitches
~Bad Lawyering

The U.S. Supreme Court has NOT determined that actually innocent people have a right to have their post-conviction evidence considered by courts. We consider it on this show and make a human rights demand to release the innocent.

7.  Sundays at 3pm EST - HUMAN RIGHTS FOR PRISONERS MARCH, hosted by Mary Neal
(by announcement only) MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com

~Advocacy for adequate defense, fair trials, drug courts, mental health courts, post-conviction DNA tests, safe and humane incarceration, and successful re-entry.

~Advocacy against prisoner abuse, avoidable deaths caused by police and correctional officers, solitary confinement, children tried and sentenced as adults, criminalizing mental illness, inadequate health care, wrongful convictions, law of parties, three-strikes law, enforced prison labor, and capital punishment.

Guests include people who have experienced, or who have specialized knowledge about, prison conditions and overuse of force by police or correctional officers, or any subject related to crime and punishment, including improvements proposed or realized.

SPECIAL NOTES:  Occasionally, presentation of a guest's issues requires two broadcasts. In those cases, Part I is presented on the "Human Rights Demand" channel on Sunday. "Human Rights for Prisoners March" does not air every Sunday on the "Human Rights Demand" channel, but only when announced on the MaryLovesJustice Neal wall at Google+ and at the MaryLovesJustice (Mary Neal) wall at Facebook.
